My husband came up with this recipe as an alternative to buying pre-made mixes which are more expensive. The dry ingredients can be mixed up ahead of time and stored in an air-tight container (we do this when we go camping). This recipe can be made with or without eggs. The recipe without eggs is not quite as light and fluffy, but I still think they are delicious!
Josh's Banana Pancakes
Two mashed bananas,
2 1/4 cups filtered/distilled water*
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour (or sub whole wheat pastry flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup finely chopped nuts (optional) This is optional but walnuts or pecans taste great in this mix)
2 eggs (optional)
1 Tbsp of cinnamon
Combine dry and wet ingredients separately and then mix them together with as little mixing as possible.
Cook in frying pan over medium heat until done.
Top with peanut butter, applesauce, fresh fruit or 100% real maple syrup. They even taste good plain!
*Sometimes whole wheat flour tends to suck up more water, so if you find your batter too thick, please add water until it comes to the consistancy of typical box-mix pancake batter.
